Berkeley Lab researchers have discovered a light-sensitive opsin protein that plays a surprising and possibly critical role in neuron maturation and circuit formation in the central nervous system.
Turn the Light On: A Non-visual Opsin Could Help Future Studies of the Brain and Central Nervous System
Berkeley Lab Researchers Demonstrate First Size-based Chromatography Technique for the Study of Living Cells
Using nanodot technology, Berkeley Lab researchers demonstrated the first size-based form of chromatography for studying the membranes of living cells. This unique physical approach to probing cellular membrane structures reveals critical information that can’t be obtained through conventional microscopy.
